It's worth pointing out to new holidaymakers that Stephen and Valerie mentionned in recent reviews have now left. Whilst the Barn Suite we stayed in (the only room currently available due to extensive refurbishment of the main house) was wonderful with incredible views and a setting second to none, the main house is currently a no-go area. My rating therefore... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at High Grassings. Good location for exploring the countryside. We had thought about staying in Ambleside so we could walk in town & to restaurants. Although Ambleside is a nice town we were so glad we chose High Grassings. The setting is lovely and Stephen & Valerie we very helpful with advice for... More

We have just returned from a weekend staying at High Grassings and we have had the most wonderful time. Our weekend started with a friendly warm welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Lots of local knowledge was shared with us. A pleasant 2 mile walk to hawkshead to delightful pubs with amazing food (however booking is recommended). A five star... More

We have just returned from a four nights stay at High Grassings where we were made very welcome by Valerie and Stephen. We stayed in Helvellyn, an upstairs room with the most beautiful views from double aspect windows from the garden to a field beyond where we watched the lambs and their mothers, and beyond that the mountains. I can't... More

This is a lovely B&B very well maintained and lovely decoration. The room was spacious with a gorgeous view. The breakfast was delicious and the service excellent!! With such lovely garden and flowers, it was a bit disappointing to see plastic flowers in the room and dinning room. Despite the excellent service and room, we felt the price was a... More

From the moment we arrived, Val and Stephen could not do enough for us. From helping carry the bags in, to making us both a welcome cup of tea to drink in the cosy sitting room, next to the log-burning fire, looking out over spectacular views, we were treated to the highest standard of welcomes. Our room was terrific. Really... More

Stayed April 14 and we were lucky to have experienced Val and Steve's hospitality. Val has to be one of the kindest hoteliers we have met. The room (barn) was gorgeous, huge super king bed super comfy bed, great shower (always piping hot!) and wonderful views. The room itself was perfect but would have proved better value if more than... More

Just spent 2 wonderful nights here. Val and Stephen can't do enough for you. They are one of the most friendliest B&B owners we have ever come across. Accommodation is fabulous. Food plentiful. Spectacular views. Gorgeous location. Would highly recommend it.
